Yesterday both the Obama and Romney campaigns suspended campaigning in respect for the victims of 9-11.
Last night a cheap, shoddy internet video making fun of the Prophet Muhammad and desecrating his memory hit the Middle East. As a result, two of our US embassies were attacked and four American diplomats were killed.
At 12:01 before President Obama and his State Department and foreign policy team could gather the facts, talk to allies, and secure the safety of other diplomats, Mitt Romney shot off his mouth, not bothering to make sure America was speaking with one voice, without regard for the lives of other diplomats and Marines posted at embassies.
Mitt Romney has got to be the most selfish and silly politician since George Wallace. The thought of this juvenile politician who made a jillion dollars stealing the jobs of working Americans becoming President is really frightening.
We finally got out of Bush’s war of choice in Iraq. We need to get out of Afghanistan. And now we have a major Presidential candidate trying to start a war with Iran. Plus, he’s saber rattling in Libya and Egypt. Disgusting. Horrible. Dangerous. Romney is a dangerous fool.
